No...as far as I know, purchases are still recorded on the smart card, and so a purchase must be made on the device where the recording resides.


My wife ordered a movie with the remote and we got it on the UPL. Not supposed to happen, is it? I watched it and she watched it. On different 24s. Kinda surprised me when I saw it on the UPL. I don't have a Genie.

No, that is how it works. When you buy any PPV now it becomes playable on ANY receiver on the account (for most movies, this applies for 24 hours). You can "buy" the PPV on one receiver, watch part of it on one receiver, part on another, watch it in its entirety on one then rewatch it on another, etc. However, if it is a recorded program the purchase must be recorded on the DVR it resides upon before being viewed anywhere.

Right on!
Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

Got that. I could swear the movie had a 48 hour limit, but I don't trust my memory that much to be anywhere near certain.
